HIGHWAY SURVEYOR'S REPORT 



To the Selectmen of the Town of Andover — 

Gentlemen : I herewith present my report on Highways 
and Bridges. 

The first highway work was begun February 8, that of 
hauling stone from the farm of A. C. Mears. We kept at 
this when the weather would allow until we had drawn into 
Red Springs gravel pit 249 loads weighing nearly 600 tons. 

During the months of March and April we were employed 
repairing the washouts on Central, Main, Harding streets 
and on Walnut avenue. As soon as the weather was settled 
so we could run the road machine we started in Scotland 
District and repaired nearly every road east of the turnpike 
going to the Middleton, the North Reading and the North 
Andover lines. Also some seven or eight miles were re- 
paired in West Parish, using the machine. We stoned 750 
feet of road in Frye Village, beginning at the Miller place 
and going toward Lowell. 

About the usual number of culverts have been cleaned 
out and laid over. The usual spring cleaning of gutters 
was done and a number of the streets were cleaned again in 
the fall. 

The east side of Maple Avenue has had a concrete side- 
walk and concrete gutter with two catch basins, the side- 
walk under the betterment act and to the grade given by 
the town engineer. A portion of the gutter in Marland 
Village and on Phillips street has been concreted. A new 
gravel sidewalk has been laid a part of the way from Pun- 
chard Avenue to Elm street. This was also built to the en- 
gineer's grade. 



60 

The next sidewalk, 4100 feet in length, was built on 
Porter street beginning at Main street, and running south- 
west to the house of H. K. Flint. At the east end near 
Main street, the road was too narrow to allow a sidewalk. 
So I went to see Mr. Abbott, the owner of adjoining land 
and I found I could purchase a strip of land 250 feet in 
length 7 1-2 feet wide for $ 25. I reported the same to the 
Board of Selectmen and they advised me to buy it immedi- 
ately. I had the town counsel make out the necessary 
papers, and Mr. Marland and I went to Boston, saw Mr. 
Abbott and paid him the money. I then moved the wall 
and laid the sidewalk, making a decided improvement in 
the looks of the street. 

Other sidewalks have been repaired where needed. The 
sidewalk in Abbott Village u that never received a drop 
of water except what fell from the heavens" has been re- 
paired. 

After waiting seven weeks for pipe we broke ground on 
Main street, July 5th. This required 3300 feet of 10, 12 
and 15 inch Akron pipe. This was laid, followed by the 
macadam road and a paved gutter to plans drawn by the 
State Highway Commission. This new road from Rogers 
Brook to the top of the hill to Chapel Avenue was finished 
August 30. Six catch basins were included in this side of 
the street. The estimate of the State Highway Commission 
for paving, laying the pipe, macadamizing the road and 
putting in the catch basins called for a little over ten thou- 
sand dollars. lam ^very happy to say that I did this work 
for a little less than $6000. I went to see the commission 
about the depth to lay the pipe. They told me that three 
feet under the surface would be perfectly safe. At this 
depth we came into contact with the pipes of the Gas Com- 
pany so was obliged to put ours 20 inches lower than called 
for. In addition I laid 300 feet of 10 inch pipe not called 
for in the plans. I want to say right here that this side of 
Main street was built entirely new, not one shovelful of the 



61 

old macadam being used. The old macadam was used on 
Chestnut street between Central and Main, and on Punchard 
avenue from Bartlet round to Chestnut street. The re- 
mainder was put in the hollow on Main street, near Porter 
street. The expense of using this is included in the $6000. 
I next built 2500 feet of State Road beginning at Abbott's 
corner and coming towards town to the Captain Ives place. 

There was $2000 appropriated for macadam on the River 
road, beginning at the Lawrence line. Had the weather re- 
mained favorable a few days longer, this amount would 
have been expended. With the money used, 2275 feet were 
built. The machinery is all in place with the exception of 
the engine. If the town sees fit to use the balance $228, 
the length of macadam road will be brought up to 3000 feet. 
The new street called the Tyrian Way has been put in good 
shape, and a sidewalk built along the North side. 

The big culvert at the overflow of Hannegan's pond in 
Frye Village has been relaid with cement. The bridge over 
the Shawsheen River in Frye Village has been re-surfaced 
with two inch plank. 

JBallardvale roads are all right, and will be kept so in my 
opinion, as long as the same party holds the ribbons at the 
engine house, namely John Haggerty. 

Twenty-six hundred feet of macadam road have been put 
in on Elm street, running east. This had a paved gutter 
and two catch basins. I claim that this side of the street 
will, with five years' wear, be in better condition than the 
south side was when completed. The catch basin on the 
south side of Elm street necessitated the laying of 600 feet 
of 10 inch pipe through Florence street to connect with the 
pipe under Park street, running into Rogers' Brook. 

The boulder on the new street leading to Carmel Woods 
has been removed at an expense of $80. 

The town has been canvassed as to guide boards and 17 
new posts and 50 new boards have been put up.

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR 



The Almshouse is still in charge of Mr. and Mrs. George 
L. Burnham, and their management is very satisfactory. 
The majority of the inmates are over sixty years old, three 
being between eighty and ninety, requiring much care and 
attention. 

In the report of the State Board of Charities the Andover 
Almshouse which is inspected by their agent each year, 
stands among the first in the state. 

The inmates are well fed and clothed and made in all 
respects very comfortable. 

We would be pleased to have the people of the town visit 
the Almshouse and see for themselves how our poor are 
cared for.

CEMETERY COMMITTEE 



The Committee on Spring Grove Cemetery herewith sub- 
mit their report for the year ending January, 1903. 

Your committee consider the amount annually appro- 
priated by the town too small for the work that must 
annually be performed and will be obliged to ask for a larger 
amount in the years to come. As the newly plotted grounds 
are prepared for burial purposes, more expense is entailed? 
and while economy is the rule to be observed, money must be 
expended to keep the sacred resting places of the dead in 
proper condition. 

This year has been a starting year for permanent changes 
and your committee earnestly request the public to visit the 
grounds and examine the character of the proposed improve- 
ments in the cemetery, making it an ornament to the town. 
Your committee desire to call your attention to the expense 
account for the past year as compared with that of previous 
years. Much needed work has been performed that was not 
required in preceding years, while the addition to the new 
grounds connected with the older portion of the cemetery, 
an extension of about four (4) acres, has been prepared for 
burial purposes, and this with the work and expense of 
grading, making and care of walks, paths and avenues, the 
usual appropriation has not been sufficient to accomplish the 
needs of the cemetery committee, consequently the deposit 
arising from the sale of standing wood, has been drawn from 
and used for cemetery purposes.

PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT 



With this, is presented an account of the receipts and ex- 
penditures for the year, showing an overdraw of eighty-five 
cents over the seven hundred dollars appropriated for the 
use of the Commission. Owing to the unexpected quantity 
of filling brought from the streets to the Common, the 
larger part of the money was expended in taking care of 
the same. The cost of a sixteen inch drain pipe, laid from 
Whittier street, near the corner of Bartlet to the brook, 
was one hundred and sixty dollars and seventy cents. It 
is believed that this will take care of the water which has 
heretofore been left to run over the surface of the land from 
this point. 

Fifty-eight dollars and fifty cents have been expended in 
Carmel Woods in clearing up brush and leaves and repairing 
roadway. Nothing has been paid for surveys, etc., as 
the money was expended in doing the necessary work 
specified. 

Respectfully submitted,

JOHN N. COLE, \ Commissioners 



TREE WARDEN'S REPORT 



During the past year trees have been trimmed and dead 
trees removed from the following streets : Elm street, High 
street, Summer street, Washington avenue, Maple avenue, 
Harding street, School street, Abbot street, Whittier street, 
Central street, Andover street, Clark Road, and Dale street. 
A spraying outfit has been purchased for use on the Elm 
trees as a protection against the Elm beetle which has 
already made its appearance on the Elm trees in various 
parts of the town. On September 25, a hearing was held 
relative to the removal of trees on Elm street and also on 
Main street, which was well attended. Meeting called to or- 
der at 3 o'clock, thirty voters being present. After being 
generally discussed by nearly all present it was deemed 
advisable to remove the trees on the east side of Elm street, 
between the Musgrove building and Mr. Joseph Cole's 
residence and to allow all the trees on the East side of Main 
street between Chapel avenue and Salem street to remain. 
Meeting adjourned at 4.25. A second hearing was held 
relative to the removal of tree on the west side of Elm street 
which was disposed of satisfactory to all. 

In closing my report I would ask that the sum of five 
hundred ($500) dollars be appropriated that the work may 
be carried on this year, as several of the roads in the out- 
skirts of the town are almost overgrown by the bushes and 
undergrowth. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

J. H. PLAYDON, Tree Warden.

By a decision of the courts, Phillips Academy is entitled 
to a rebate on a portion of their taxes paid for several years 
under protest. There is more than sufficient to cover this 
year's taxes which amount to $2510.64, and these taxes will 
be paid from this money when an appropriation is made for 
that purpose. As no arrangement has been made, they 
appear on the report as unpaid when in reality they are paid. 
This would make the amount collected $92,468.62 and the 
uncollected $36,045.45.

THIRTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 
OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



The annual reports of the Librarian and Treasurer, given 
on other pages, supply the usual statistics as to the acces- 
sions and use of books, and the expenses of the Library for 
the past year. 

Miss Twichell, the Superintendent of the Cornell Art Col- 
lection, reports in addition that the total number of visitors 
was 3254 — adults, 895, children, 2359 — and the average 
daily attendance, 35. She remarks that the daily average is 
the same as in the previous year, although the Art Room 
was closed for nearly two weeks on account of the prevalence 
of small pox and for a longer period during the coal famine. 
This shows that the interest taken in this important feature 
of the Library is not one of transient novelty, but of lasting 
attractiveness and usefulness, especially to the children and 
youth of the town. 

The causes already mentioned — the prevalence of the 
small pox in summer, and the great difficulty of heating the 
Library in winter — have affected to a considerable degree 
the circulation of books through the general delivery, the 
district delivery, and the public schools. 

Attention may properly be called to the gift to the Refer- 
ence Library of the costly and finely illustrated "Lawson 
History of the America's Cup," as also the presentation by 
a citizen of five standard volumes, including Prof. G. F. 
Wright's " Asiatic Russia." This last item may suggest to 



133 

other citizens the beneficent use which might be made ot 
similar works of current literature when they have finished 
the reading of them.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of the Town of Andover: 

Your Board of Public Works submit their fourth annual 
report, it being the fourteenth of the Water and sixth of the 
Sewer Systems for the year ending January 18, 1903. 

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

No. of sewer connections, 367 

Amount expended in 1902, $2712.48 

Cost of Sewers, $124954.02 

Sewer bonds, $125000.00 

Cost of maintenance, $771.02 

Sinking funds, $46696.78 

The 367 connections with the sewer connect 407 buildings, 
as follows: 350 dwellings, 10 dormitories, 16 business 
buildings, 9 boarding houses, 4 hotels and eating houses, 2 
manufactories, 2 club houses, 1 engine house, 3 public 
buildings, 3 laundries, 4 school houses, 1 bakery, 1 gymna- 
sium and 1 church. 

1099.55 feet of sewer was laid in Abbot street and in con- 
nection with that formerly laid completes the line from 
School to Phillips with the exception of about 350 feet, 348.5 
feet on Harding street to connect with the Main street line 

The system now comprises 10 3-4 miles, which embraces 
nearly all of the thickly settled portions of the center and 
hill districts. There are however a few streets not fully 
completed and with new ones that will eventually be opened, 
there will yet be calls for more sewers, but as these requests 
do not come often, the amount required each year for con- 
struction purposes will naturally be small. 



The sewer system has passed the experimental stage and 
now may well be considered a success. 

The disposal of the sewage is the most important factor to 
be considered in any sewer system and is becoming more 
serious every year and Andover was exceedingly fortunate 
that this problem which seemed so hard at first was solved in 
a manner that was for the best interest of all concerned. 

The filter beds are taking care of the sewage with but 
little trouble and there is no apparent reason to anticipate 
any until the population of the town is much larger than at 
present. 

With the exception of a few isolated cases (and these will 
be remedied if possible) no complaint has reached us of any 
trouble connected with the system during the past year.

The town at the last annual meeting authorized the issue 
of additional water bonds to the amount of thirty thousand 
dollars for construction purposes. There has been sold 
twenty-eight thousand dollars worth of this amount. 

The 10 inch line from the pumping station past the 
Osgood school house to Ballardvale was completed in Sept- 
ember. The large amount of ledge and the difficult digging 
for more than half the way made the work more expensive 
than was estimated, but the good results obtained, since it 
was opened, is sufficient evidence of the great benefit to the 



system and demonstrates the advantages that will be derived 
in the future by its construction. 

This was laid as a force main rather than a supply line 
yet there are now six water takers on the route. 

In this connection it may be of interest to note that for a 
dozen years the water supply of the town has been de- 
pendent on one line of pipe for nearly two miles, or from 
the pond to the West church yet very fortunately, during 
that number of years there has not been a time when there 
was not an adequate supply for all purposes. 

There has also been laid in River street, Ballard vale, 1145 
feet to the last house, a line from the reservoir to the dead 
end on Salem street, 2500 feet, giving the people in that 
section better service. 1384 feet in Haverhill street, Frye 
Village to the house of George Mander, 468 feet in Porter 
street, which makes through line from Salem to Main street, 
and 451 feet in Avon street ; the remainder to Chestnut 
street will be completed next season. 

With the above additions there are now 29.69 miles of 
street mains and 215 hydrants. 

As it is the duty of this board to care for and direct the 
different sewer and water sinking funds, Mr. John W. Bell 
was elected treasurer of them and assumed his duties April 
1st. A statement of the condition and investments accom- 
pany this report. 

The new water rates that have been in use during the 
year appear to be giving general satisfaction. It certainly 
is easier for many to pay quarterly and we think this change 
is appreciated and though it requires more clerical work the 
result of this manner of collecting is very gratifying. There 
was due for water to Jan. 1st $7.50 which amount will be 
collected, when the water is turned on again. 

A telemeter was installed late in the season and thus far 
is working all right. This is an ingenious piece of mechan- 
ism by which the height of water in the reservoir is recorded 



6 

on a dial in the office of the board every hour in the day and 
night. 

Should this continue to work correctly, and it lias in 
other towns, it will save a daily trip, and sometimes oftener 
to the reservoir to ascertain the amount of water it contains 
which is necessary at all times to know. 

Pine street, the new one laid out and constructed last 
year, from Elm to Summer is without water and it would 
seem to be the proper thing to lay pipe there the coming 
season. If laid it would not only accommodate quite a 
number of citizens who want it, but it would improve the 
system in that locality by thus securing better circulation. 

It will require $7520 for general expense next year and 
your board asks that this amount be appropriated for that 
purpose. 

Very respectfully, 

JOHN L. SMITH ^

An electric Telemeter, indicating and recording every two 
inch change in the level of the water in the reservoir, has 
been installed. 

Sewers* 

During 1902, 1448.06 feet of sewer and 826 feet of under- 
drain was laid, as follows : Abbot Street 1099.55 feet of 
sewer, 826 feet of underdrain ; Harding Street 348.51 feet of 
sewer. 

46 applications for house connections were received and 46 
connections laid. Length of connections laid during year 
3163 feet. 

Total number of applications received to date, 386. 

Total number of connections in service, 367. 

Total length of house connections, 23,959 feet, 4.538 miles. 

The works are in good condition, the only special expense 
to be met during the coming year will be for repairs on 
boiler No. 2, which are now being made. The cleaning and 
renewing of the old cement lined service pipes will soon 
become a factor in the operation of the Water Department ; 
no serious expense is liable to be incurred on this account, 
however, during 1903. The operation of the new water 



35 

rates appears to have given general satisfaction. While the 
rendering of the bills quarterly increases the cost of meter 
reading and clerical work, the increased cost is fully compen- 
sated for by the gain in the efficiency of the meter system 
and the satisfaction of the consumers. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.
